Inner West.

Marrickville Sunday Markets

Cost: Free to Browse

Essentials: Cash // Blanket to sit on // Bag for Life if shopping //

Why: The market is full of locally sourced fresh food, food trucks and crafts. There is even a small pony ride for children on the grass. The food trucks offer every type of cuisine and you can even do your weekly shop there as well. Grab a Thai Chi and sit on a rug with your friends and enjoy the morning bustle of the market. Also anyone English/Irish looking for a decent scone…go see the Irish baker her scones are delicious!

Graffiti Wonder

Cost: Free

Essentials: Comfy Shoes // Camera // Cash for a Coffee // Water //

Why: There are lots of Graffiti murals around the Inner West. Wonder around Newtown, Marrickville, St Peters and you can’t miss them. Have a wonder see what you can find and probably a new cafe will be discovered along the way as that is one thing the Inner West is not short of…good cafes.

Rent a bike to cycle around the Inner West

Cost: Free or rent a bike using the O Bike App.

Essentials: Bike // Helmet // Sunscreen // Water // Runners //

Why: Found a nice little path along the river from Marrickville to Tempe. You can ride your bikes, run or walk it. Lovely little escape from the concrete jungle of the Inner West.

Beer Gardens

Cost: How many do you want to drink?

Why: I have been to some lovely beer gardens around the Inner West. There are still some I need to visit but a few favorites would have to be… The Henson, Courthouse Hotel, Sauce Brewing Company and the Iron Duke Hotel. Great way to take in the sunshine with your favorite beer.

Bay Walk

Cost: Just your transport fees or/ and a coffee

Essentials: Headphones// Comfy Footwear// Water //

Why: The Bay Walk is a 7KM look around the Bay in Haberfield. It’s got lovely views of the city and boats resting on the Bay. There is a cafe by the UTS club if you fancy a coffee. There is also toilets and a playground on the loop. I have done it for exercise and had a stroll and a catch up with girlfriends on this walk. I like to do it Saturday morning get the weekend off to a fresh start.
